Boots....
 
I have been wanting to get Dumas some overreach boots... Not sure which ones are any good. Most of the folks around here don't worry about things like that....Sooo... My fleshy friends aren't much help... I was wondering if my cyber friends could clue me in.

What are your thoughts on bell boots, polo wraps and splint boots.... I'm not familiar with any of them...

>>>>shoving soap box over to ya'all>>>>>>

Lemme hear what you know..... :D

Sorry if I am being a pain... I just want my boys to be healthy and happy... I know Dumas will kick himself when he gets going

And i use these sport boots when i ride cause when my horse gets going fast he overreaches and has kicked his front legs with his back ones. But they make their legs warm so after a hard workout be sure to hose off his legs.

I have a pair of these splint boots
http://www.doversaddlery.com/all-pur...-04176/cn/118/
I used them when i was jumping Vega or doing any lunging. I have miss placed them though :(

I have these open front boots
http://www.doversaddlery.com/dover-p...-04232/cn/119/

I like them a lot. I've used them when we were just messing around, but i'm going to use them when we start jumping again.

I also have these bell boots
http://www.doversaddlery.com/equi-st...1-0436/cn/120/
They were good at first because they were sturdy and protect Vega's hooves, but now the velcro is 90% off, so i'm going to have to buy new ones. I only used these occasionally and am very disappointed with them. But i use these almost all the time.

I also have a pair of polo wraps. I used them once on Vega, thought they were pretty cool. I haven't used them again because i rolled one up the wrong way and it was hot outside and i was hot and didn't feel like mucking with it. So they're currently in my tack box. Though i do have to say i liked them. They made her look pretty too :D

OH! i almost forgot, i have a pair of SMB elites for her rear legs. I got them for her after she had mud fever (scratches, greasy heel etc) thinking it would protect it. It didn't and she didn't like them very much. It would throw her canter way off balance. So i don't use those anymore. I also have the dover pro ankle boots, but they don't fit her :?
